The simple basis for this type of discussion should be predicated on a simple logic. Buy the most expensive lens you can afford that meets the criteria you define.
Game. Set. Match.
That *criteria* is the important part. If AF, for instance, isn't something you rely on, you've just saved a silly amount money and you're still aces.
Yup.

Amazingly sharp at f2.8. I would think keeping the subject properly in focus would be difficult at that aperture, but the K1 focuses so much better than any other Pentax camera I've used. It almost magically focuses on the right spot almost every time.

100% crop, f2.8, 200mm, ISO 250 but still pretty decent.
A lot of words happened since you posted this photo... many which have nothing to do with the original question... I hadn't noticed that you stated it was a 100% crop....I'm impressed. This answers the original question perfectly.
